|Be sure you know if the existing paint is latex or oil-based. Our house is full of surprises--different finishes and bases in every room. Thanks, previous homeowners.|
I painted the doorway trim in the kitchen and the pantry and swinging door two weekends ago. The Sherwin-Williams label says to wait three days for the paint to cure before taping. Done. Well I taped it off today to take care of this convenient two inch space of wall between the pantry and the adjacent wall. Needless to say, I peeled off the blue tape, along with half of the trim paint. Agh!!!!!!!!!!! If I keep taping one to paint the other, then this viscous cycle WILL NOT END. This house is going to send me to the place they keep the crazies. If there is anything I hate more than painting, it's redoing work that I've already done. One reprieve was the fact that all of the touch-ups (of wall paint only, obviously) are done, and the back entryway is painted just like the kitchen. By the way, Meditation by Benjamin Moore is the awesomest gray/green saturated wall color. I wish my whole house was done in this color instead of my safe, ultra-neutral Powell Buff.
On a side note, it's time for summer cuts. I'm thinking something short and piece-y instead of my standard long bob curled under. When Dear Husband says my hair is getting long, it must be time for a cut--especially since he knows to never comment on my hair unless it's a compliment!
|Not my favorite person, but maybe this cut a touch longer.|
|This looks like it could be perfect with my thin, non-volumized hair.|
|I'm pretty sure he is the most adorable baby ever!|
